For bridge 1 we start at finding 5 things about our memory. And in the seminar class, we write a story for each thing, then we need to use AR technology to make the 3D model. This is my first time to do the 3D model I think it is really difficult for me, I don’t know what I can do and I was really confusing about this project. After the teacher coming to explain the more about the 3D model, I start to figure out. I chose the red tea and scented candles.
Bridge 2: Contestational Artifacts
I designed mahjong for my partner. Mahjong has a lot of different ways of playing and there are different ways to win this game. Play Mahjong when you win this game you have a bonus. So I want to bring this bonus to my partner. But I think I can do it better if I doing this again, I will make more only not 1 way so people can have more information about Mahjong to start playing with it.
bridge 3: NY Experience
Our group chooses the Greenwich village to do the research, in this bridge project everyone all has their own thing to do. Before I do this research I don’t really know the history about Washington Square, I don’t know before Washington Square is a public burial ground. In the 19th century, New York went through yellow fever diseases. However, Washington square park did not include in the New York City limits yet. Therefore, most of those who died from yellow fever were buried here, safely away from town, as a hygienic measure. The cemetery was closed in 1825. Even today, there are more than 20,000 bodies rest under Washington Square. Excavations have found tombstones under the park dating as far back as 1799. But now people like doing some relaxing in this Square.
bridge 4: Research-led Design
My topic is about Chanel after I doing all the research I learned that Ms. Coco Chanel is a representative of feminism. Everyone knows that the representative flower of Chanel is Camellia. So I decided to make a lady tie as mine artifact.
Before I take this class I have zero expressions for using AR technology when I do bridge one we need using AR technology make our memory. In the beginning, I think this work is so difficult for me I don’t know how to start the project, but when I finish this work I feel really pried of myself. For bridge two we need to make a souvenir for my partner, I need to know her very clearly, know her preferences and then make a souvenir that she likes. I think it is very special to design something she likes from another person’s point of view, which is a new experience. When we doing bridge three, our group is research for Greenwich Village during the research I know a lot of things before I didn’t pay attention to. The last bridge I personally think is the hardest. Because when we need to do the artifact, Don’t know how to make a representative work, when I after doing the research it helps me more understanding my topic, help me to make a really good artifact. During this semester I learned a lot from making and writing, thought every week reading I know the different writing style it helps me a lot.
Our group choose the greenwich village to do the research, as we all know Washington Square is one of the most famous places in the neighborhood. Before I do this research I don’t really know the history about the Washington Square, I don’t know before Washington Square is a public burial ground. In the 19th century, New York went through yellow fever diseases. However, Washington square park did not include in the New York City limits yet. Therefore, most of those who died from yellow fever were buried here, safely away from town, as a hygienic measure. The cemetery was closed in 1825.

My magic is to show audiences the paper that cannot be shred. To make the trick successful, the first step is to prepare two pieces of small square paper with the same size and same color. Then twist one of the two pieces of paper to make a spitball and hide it into the palm. These two steps are the preparation work before sitting in front of audiences. Then, face the audiences to show them the other piece of paper. Shred this paper, while paying attention to the movement range and not to let the spitball made before drop out of the palm. After shredding the other paper, carefully change the places of the shred paper spitball with the one that is intact and hidden in the palm before. The movement of switching places should be careful but no too slow in the case to be seen through by any of the audiences. Then, gradually unfold the spitball that has been prepared previously and to make the audience wonder why the paper is back to become a competed paper again. This magic makes full use of audiences’ “misdirected assumption about reliability” mentioned in the Tufte reading material to successfully daze their attention.
